Title: More VTech category/categories? (MobiGo, Whiz Kid)
Post by: ugr on December 26, 2019, 01:47:07 PM
VTech has a touchscreen motion sound game thing with an e-reader called the mobigo, there is actually already a second iteration of it. Could we get a category for it? Up to the db person if mobigo and mobigo2 should be separated...

Edit/Addition: Also, can I work with someone to get Whiz Kid categories? There were multiple systems with the title which might be what's holding this one back.

For both, I can add a bunch of stuff once the categories are there.

I'd need more details about these devices to build them into the DB. Does the mobigo 1 & 2 use the same media? What media do they use? etc.

For the MobiGo, I can say that they use cartridges, and that mobigo cartridges will work in a mobigo2. I'm not sure about the reverse.

Here's the MobiGo 2 manual: https://www.vtechkids.com/assets/data/products/%7B1000A3B7-F0ED-477E-8BED-1BA338D97629%7D/manuals/135800_MobiGo2ProductManual_05.29.12(2012)_FINAL.pdf

The Whiz Kid gets confusing because I don't know all the models, but I know they're not all cross-compatible..

The one I have is the original, where Whiz Kid software comes as a cartridge and card pack. You insert the cartridge, and then the cards act as fake floppy disks you feed to the computer to do certain activities. There is also a laptop/notebook model with a graphic LCD (the original is a segment display), and then there are talking models. I'll work to round up more info.
